The Gorean Forums Role Play Sim

I think we should do it.

Seriously; lets a group of us figure out a concept, hash it out on the forums, and do this thing. We can hash out basic topics or something with threads and polls. Submit build ideas and vote on them. Rules. Whatever.

Some of you store owners can do a -small- market at the top, with a landing point or something right in the middle to help pay for portions of the tier. I'm not talking about the uber huge maze markets....I'm talking out some simple where the TP point down to the sim is right there, too.

Who's down?

I'm really, really interested but I don't want to commit 100% just yet, as I'm not sure I have the time. :(

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

One thing that occurs to me. While obviously a "Gor inspired" setting is more my sort of thing just because then we don't have to deal with the eternal issue of slave boredom, more importantly:New Characters Required.

I'm personally deeply, deeply sick of every darn sim, the first thing you run into is people with 10 years of intertwining backstories and stuff that like. Everyone in the sim but the new people know. Plus it means that the entire city's female population has been around on the FW-Slave carousel at least 5 times and it just gets sort of silly.

A big part of the flaws of BtB Gor are rooted in the paired problems of jaded too-old characters, and the fact that even now no one knows what to do with slaves unless they're perusing them for a relationship.

I rather agree with you there, Harlequin. I retired Sabina because I felt like she had too much under her belt. There was no reason to continue playing her. I know it'll be a hard sell to some, but I never quite know how to react IC when someone says "I was the ubar of X and then I did this, that, and the other."
It's sort of the gorean equivalent of "I'm half dragon, half elf, 1/4 cherokee u jelly?" in a fantasy sim.

One thing I would like to see is an emphasis on roleplay. Not just stating it, but actually doing it. Run it like every other RP sim is in SL, with broad overreaching plots that allow for every player, even if they're just starting, to jump in.
I know I will be wildly unpopular in this, but non-metered sims tend to do poorly so I think partially metered may be best (Designated raid times?) which adds an outside threat as well. Do I like meters? Absolutely not. Most sims elsewhere thrive without them, but that isn't the case in Gor in my experience. I'd love to be proven wrong.

It would be nice to set the RP up in a way that has a house/sector specific for each type of player. Gor tends to focus upon physical locations - Tavern, infirmary, etc when I think there is more benefit for a long term RP if it's set up almost like a roman theme sim would be. House X controls this resource, House Y controls another. It creates a solid foundation rather than people magically coming in with all the power and monies. All of it.

Eh. It depends on what you want.
You want a traditional Gor sim for gorean RPers? Yeah, meter.

want just an RP sim that's Gor? Not a bad idea to cast off all the crap that has for some reason become "accepted" as just how Gor is done.

But, that's why I keep saying that a sim that has all the aspects of Gor, the D/s, the -really- hot kinky sex, the slavegirls, the violence, but isn't Gor makes it maybe easier because you odn' t have all the baggage.
